attacked. what i would say that is a bit different to what mike rogers said is that our intelligence laws, the practices that our intelligence and liaison agencies are engaged in need to be subject to vigorous oversight, as transparent as possible. there needs to be public buy-in to what governments are doing to keep the citizens safe. i don't think there has been enough public discussion. edward snowden's acts are despicable. he's been charged and should return to this country and face those charges. stealing classifying information, the type he stole, is not okay with me period. what came from that is a public conversation we should have had a decade ago about practices and procedures that the government should engage in to keep us safe. what people understand better, what metadata is, that it's not a view into personal lives, but it's an insurance policy in case someone else, who may look and sound like them is engaged in bad stuff. once people understand that, they will support that. my difference with mike rogers is that our intelligence communities are not the bad guys. no, they are
